Any Printer you can use Goto server properties, as above mentioned set the papersize put it as default for your printer in windows Printers settings and dont set any size measurement in your VB code. any attempt made to change the papersize or scalesize in coding vb change it as default. So rely on windows printers setting what you need. the vb take it from windows dont bother about any codings

Normally this is done by using printer command codes.

Are you trying to do this through a custom application or an application like Word?

What datastream emulations does your printer support. For example ASCII, Extended ASCII, PCL or Postscript.

It's pretty straight forward programming, do you need help with it?

I have similar issue, either configuring the printer (epson lx-300) with windows drivers or ibm generic, the margins doesn't work properly.
I followed what fikrifaza said, and the printer works but even if i change the margins (from control panel-->printer and fax-->choose IBM Proprinter II ---> click File-->server properties--> click form tab--> ...) like zero or whatever, it doesn't work. The margins stays always the same.

How to set half half size paper


Look for a latch on the right side tractor drive. This will unlock it so you can slide it sideways on its rail. Set it approximately where it should be, load the paper, then adjust it so you have a slight amount of tension across the paper. I think the rest is software.

Configuration of page length


Most of these older printers use a special key to enter setup...usually upon power-up. Have paper inserted, because that is where it prints it's configuration.

It will probably use some of the feature buttons to change the paper size and tear-off options. Sorry I can't help with a manual, but I hope this helps.

Custom size doesn''t present on your driver on Form to Tray Assigment in


Hi, I can't understand what "Custom size doesn''t present on your driver " means. the drver is just the piece of sofware used by windows to make your printer work. Custome size setting should have nothing to do with the driver.
